This Supplement to the Provisional Roll of Service has 
been closed on June 30, 191 6, so as to cover a full year from 
the close of the Provisional Roll issued in July, 191 5, with Vol. 
II. of the Aberdeen University Review. 

The Supplement, which follows the same divisions as the 
Roll, contains not only all new names reported during the year, 
but the names of any transferred from one branch of "H.M.'s 
Forces to another and of all previously reported in the ranks 
who have now been commissioned. A list is also given of 
graduates serving under the British Red Cross Society. This 
is far from complete. 

The list of the fallen, eighty-four, is given from the begin- 
ning. It has not been found possible to give a full list of the 
wounded ; they number over one hundred and thirty. 

The references within brackets are to the pages of the 
Provisional Roll ; those without brackets are to the pages of 
this Supplement. 

An article by the Principal entitled "Two years of War : 
The Record of the University," appears on pp. 214-33 °f tne 
number of the Review with which this Supplement is issued ; 
and a summary of the numbers of graduates, alumni, and 
students on service will be found on p. 215. 

Corrections and Additions should be addressed to, 
and will be gratefully received by,
